## Gepco unit price and tariff for May 2023 – A quick summary for General Residential connection type

Quick Summary: Protected consumers are charged differently based on the number of units consumed. They are divided into two slabs. The first slab applies to 0 to 100 units, and the second slab applies to 101 to 200 units. The rate per 1 unit (kWh) for the first slab is 7.7401, while for the second slab, it is 10.0601.

Unprotected consumers have a single-phase unit rate, and their charges are based on the number of units consumed. For 0 to 100 units, the rate per 1 unit (kWh) is 13.48. For 101 to 200 units, the rate is 18.95. The rate increases as the number of units consumed increases.

The Government of Pakistan has made significant changes to the multi-tariff system, which has resulted in a new unit rate for domestic consumers. Multi-tariff system was eliminated, and as a result, NEPRA reviewed the latest unit prices to comply with the directive.

However, the multi-slab tariff system for protected consumers remains unchanged. This article provides an overview of the latest gepco rates or tariff which applicable in May 2023, for both protected and unprotected consumers.

## Understanding Gepco Unit Rates: Key Factors Affecting Gepco Tariff – Understand Gepco Bill and Tariff

Understanding your electricity bill can be confusing and overwhelming, especially with all the different charges and calculations involved. One important aspect of your electricity bill is the unit rates and tariff set by GEPCO. To make sense of this information, it’s essential to understand the key factors affecting GEPCO tariff.

In this article, we’ll break down how the cost of electricity is calculated, including the financing cost surcharges, electricity duty, TV licence fee, General Sales Tax (GST), Fuel price adjustment (FPA), and late payment surcharge. By the end of this article, you’ll have a better understanding of your GEPCO bill and how to calculate your payable amount accurately.

### Calculating the Cost of Electricity:

The cost of electricity is calculated by multiplying the unit rates by the appropriate unit tiers. You can use the following formula to calculate the cost of electricity:

Units x GOP Tariff = Cost of Electricity

#### Financing Cost Surcharges (F.C.):

The financing cost surcharges (F.C.) are calculated based on the number of units consumed, using a fixed rate of 0.43 paisa/unit. You can calculate F.C. charges using this formula:**Units x F.C. Rate = F.C. Charges**

#### Electricity Duty (E.D.):

Electricity duty is calculated by multiplying the cost of electricity by 0.017. You can calculate E.D. using the following formula:

Cost of Electricity x 0.017 = Electricity Duty

#### Television Licence Fee (T.V. Fee):

A fixed charge of 35 Rs. is applied for the Television Licence Fee (T.V. Fee), which can be found in the “Govt. charges” section of the bill.

#### General Sales Tax (GST):

The cumulative amount of the cost of electricity, financing cost surcharges, quarterly adjustment, and electricity duty is subject to a General Sales Tax (GST) of 17%. You can calculate GST using this formula:**(Cost of Electricity + F.C. + QTR + E.D) x 17/100 = GST**

#### Fuel Price Adjustment (FPA):

Just like FPA is calculated based on electricity consumed in the past, GST is also applied to that amount. The calculator computes the 17% GST on the FPA. You can calculate GST on FPA using the following formula:

**FPA x 17/100 = GST on FPA**

#### Electricity Duty on FPA:

Electricity Duty is also applicable to the Fuel price adjustment, which is determined by multiplying the FPA by a value of .015. You can calculate E.D on FPA using the following formula:**FPA x 1.5/100 = E.D on FPA**

#### Current Amount:

After performing all the above calculations, the calculator will determine the current bill amount. This total is the sum of all values calculated, excluding the Fuel price adjustment. You can calculate the current amount using this formula:**Cost of Electricity + F.C. Surcharge + Quarterly Adjustment + Electricity Duty + TVL Fee + GST = Current Amount**

#### Amount Payable Before Due Date:

The amount charged from the consumer is the sum of the current amount and all the FPA charges. This amount is referred to as the amount payable within the due date. You can calculate the payable amount by the following formula:**Current Amount + (FPA + GST on FPA + E.D on FPA) = Amount Payable before Due date**

#### Late Payment Surcharge (L.P. Surcharge):

Consumers who do not pay before the due date are subject to a late payment surcharge (L.P. Surcharge), which is calculated as 10% of the cost of electricity consumed by GEPCO users. You can calculate L.P. Surcharge using the following formula:**Cost of Electricity x 10/100 = Late Payment Surcharge**

#### Payable Amount After Due Date:

The total amount that must be paid after the due date is determined by adding the late payment surcharge (L.P. Surcharge) to the original amount payable within the due date. You can calculate the payable amount after the due date using the following formula:**Payable amount before due date + L.P. Surcharge = Payable amount after the due date**
